Dichroic and Light
Wood’s practice is primarily concerned with the medium of dichroic acrylic resin, which was originally developed by 3M space agency as a colourless material that filters and reflects wavelengths of light producing a spectrum of rainbow coloured shadows and projections.
Luxface Dichroic Acrylic Resin Finish offers a way to create unique, ever-changing color to many interior building surfaces. Influenced by the color of the substrate, this transparent product provides a dichroic color effect, meaning it appears to change color when viewed at various angles. Luxface Dichroic Acrylic Resin has a clear, pressure-sensitive adhesive that can be applied to acrylic. A hard-coated, protective surface layer helps resist scratching during normal use.
“Blaze” – color shifts in the warm tones of cyan/blue/magenta in transmission and red/gold color regions in reflection
“Chill” – color shifts in the cool tones of blue/magenta/yellow in transmission and gold/blue color regions in reflection
Working with the intangible medium of light, Wood orchestrates a range of high and low-tech optical materials to harness patterns of light that suggest ephemeral glimpsed moments in the natural world. The artist’s sculptures are refined and often minimal arrangements creating kinetic patterns in response to the environments in which they are placed.
